HORRIBLE ADMINISTRATION - 1/23/2019
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2018
"This school's administration is a joke! The financial aide office constantly was screwing up my financial aide and couldn't seem to figure out what or how to fill out anything and even after telling them exactly how to do it what to file how to fill it out they would screw it up 3 times over, the student success coaches never seemed to help anyone succeed at anything and couldn't be reached when contacted, never returned any contact when reaching out, the career experts and sources office was the worst career/ job website and coaching I have ever seen or tried. They're another never help you can't reach them and no returned contact office. Will make you need maximum student loans with financial aide and still owe out of pocket expenses! Most of the teaching instructors were great and really did seem to care and would do the most to help you learn and succeed. The rest of the faculty and administration there were always screwing up and screwing over and that's only if they could be contacted at all. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!"

"Having completed a bachelor's degree with CTU, I continued with a master's program. A bachelor's degree is just not enough these days. The course of instruction was substantial and it took hours of preparation and work to complete assignments. While the course did take a number of hours of my time every week, I also learned a lot and its paid off for me. The degree has been extremely valuable for me, as it has increased my compensation and career advancement opportunities."

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2011
"As a veteran focused on completing a degree, CTU was very useful in completing that goal. The per credit cost is a bit high, but the value of the degree makes that cost worthwhile. I had good luck with instructors and support staff. I was motivated and did a lot more work than some of my peers. Some of the instructors graded quite easily, while others were more strict. Over the years, the degree has paid for itself and I am glad the program has provided me with the benefits of increased compensation and career advancement opportunities."

"What a piece of s*** school. They are more worried about making money than teaching. Heck, they aren't even accredited. Don't waste your time or money. Avoid CTU like the plague. They have even been investigated for improperly handling student finances."

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2018
"I graduated 2018 with a Bachelor's in Healthcare Administration. I was able to immediately enroll into a AIT program and then get a job as a long term care administrator. CTU was a wonderful place to get my degree and advance my career. I am now considering going back for the Masters Program!"

"The admissions process is very smooth and straight forward. It is almost hard to believe how much they want you to succeed and really stand by your side even in the doctoral program. Anyone who feels that school is too hard and needs the support should really check out ctu"

"The faculty and staff are truly here to help students succeed in their academic and career aspirations. I would recommend CTU to anyone looking to advance in life and have thoroughly recommend the p[program to anyone.

"I believe that the CTU online Business Administration degree would benefit anyone as much as it did me. You just have to be willing to put the work in and the benefit will come. My employer at the time recommended CTU and I know many employers will reimburse for this school. Take advantage of it!"

"This college does not care about its students or alumni. It's all about money to them. They will not release my transcripts. They talk to you very condescending and inappropriate. Cost of tuition is too high. I would not recommend this college to anyone. It is just not worth it."
